I just got a new hp notebook. I can't figure out how to disable the tap click on my touchpad. When I go to the control panel and find the mouse options, there are several settings to change (pointer speed, appearances, etc) but nowhere is there any way to disable the click. I absolutely hate it and it really interferes with my use of this laptop. What am I missing?

I have the same problem, and no there's no Synaptics control panel. I just had to reinstall my operating system, but beforehand it was all fine and I could disable the tapping. I tried installing the driver from the Synaptics website but it wasn't the same thing I had last time, and didn't even have the tap option!

Hi - I am responding to the request for assistance with disabling the touchpad "click". I too have the same request - and I do not know the solution. Please help, as I too find this click extremely annoying.

Bless you RoadiJeff and all your offspring! I swear I coulda just about flung my new hoopdi laptop out the window. I just can't stand the touch click system constantly accidently selecting and opening things if my hands are within 3 feet of it. Sheesh! (Reducing the sensitivity is not the option I was looking for at all). Thanks to you I was able to turn that stupid thing off. PHEW! You rock!

Thanks for the solution. The Synaptics icon was in the "Hidden Icons". Right clicking the Synaptics icon in the hidden icons gave me a drop down list where I could un-check"Tap-to-click"
